During the exit conference, Mayor Romualdez underscored that cooperation among City Departments and offices is key to meet the standards set by SGLG. She likewise committed the City Government’s full adherence to the SGLG criteria.
City DILG Director Atty. Darwin Bibar said the indicators have scaled and up recently Tourism was included in the essential areas, hence the urgency of the mock survey.
The City Director expressed optimism that the City Government will get the seal for 2017 and lauded the Commitment of Mayor to comply with the SGLG standards. -HENRY JAMES G. ROCA/CIO
